Public School Fires Back After Betsy DeVos Criticizes Its Teachers
Huffington Post - about 7 hours
A Washington, D.C. public school is firing back after U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos criticized its teachers for having a “receive mode” attitude. In an interview with the conservative news site, Townhall, published on Feb. 16, DeVos expressed her belief that public school teachers are “limited by the top-down, one size fits all approaches, either at the school level, the district level, the state level, or in all too many cases, the federal decree.” DeVos then referenced Jefferson Academy, which she visited on Feb. 10. She stated: “I visited a school on Friday and met with some wonderful, genuine, sincere teachers who pour their heart and soul into their classrooms and their students and our conversation was not long enough to draw out of them what is limiting them from being even more success from what they are currently. But I can tell the attitude is more of a ‘receive mode.’ They’re waiting to be told what they have to do, and that’s not going to bring succe ...

Lee Daniels Isn't The Only Person Behind 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lee Daniels, Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey are the main faces out in front of "Lee Daniels' The Butler," but neither the filmmaker nor his high-profile stars have been with the project as long as Danny Strong. An Emmy winner for the HBO movie "Game Change," Strong was hired to write "The Butler" in 2009, a year before Daniels even signed on as director. Strong -- whom television fans might also know from his onscreen work on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "Mad Men" -- based "The Butler" on the life of Eugene Allen, a White House service worker who worked through eight administrations, from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan. (Allen's story was the source of an acclaimed Washington Post article in 2008.) For the film, Allen became Cecil Gaines (Whitaker), a White House butler who encounters history both at work and at home: Gaines' son (David Oyelowo) becomes a vocal member of the civil rights movement as his father moves from one president to the next at 1600 Pennsylvania Av ...

House of Lords swells with addition of would-be-mayors and party donors
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Thirty new peerages announced as upper house grows to unmanageable 785, with Tories overtaking Labour A billionaire industrialist, a nightclub owner and the former boss of ITV were among 30 peerages announced in a working peers list that was dominated by donors to all parties. Fourteen Tory peers were announced, 10 Liberal Democrats, five Labour and one Green, taking the size of the Lords to an unmanageable 785, making it one of the largest legislatures in the world. The Liberal Democrat peer Lord Oakeshott said the list included some good individuals but was contaminating parliament because of the number of big donors who had apparently been rewarded with peerages. "Cash for peerages pollutes parliament and the political parties that collude in this corruption," he said. Efforts had to be redoubled to reform the second chamber and take big money out of politics. The two big Tory donors appointed are Sir Anthony Bamford, chairman of JCB, the yellow mechanical digger manufacturer, ...

Search for Hoffa mystery endures for decades
Fox News - over 3 years
Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance almost 40 years ago has been the stuff of urban legend, prompting numerous theories about what happened to the former Teamsters leader. The FBI saw enough merit in a reputed Mafia captain's tip to once again this week break out the digging equipment to search for the remains in an Oakland Township field, about 25 miles north of Detroit. The feisty Hoffa was last seen about 20 miles away on July 30, 1975, outside a restaurant where he was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain. Hoffa is presumed dead. His body has never been found — but not for a lack of trying. Previous tips about Hoffa's remains have led police and the FBI to search unsuccessfully in at least six other sites from Michigan to New Jersey: — In September 1975, shortly after Hoffa was reported missing, Michigan State police and local authorities used a backhoe to look for him on ...

ELECTION RESULTS: Some Early Returns from Tuesday’s Primary Election
B Town Blog - over 4 years
The first round of results for Tuesday’s Primary Election have been released, and the early tally shows Rep. Jim McDermott leading in Congressional District No. 7 with 70.51% of the vote, ahead of second-place Republican Ron Bemis (14.84%) as well as Andrew Hughes (5.87%) and Burien’s own Goodspaceguy (0.86% ). In the Governor’s race, Democrat Jay Inslee is leading with 46.78% to Republican Rob McKenna’s 42.93%. This is a “top-two” election, meaning the top two winners will advance to the Nov. 6 General Election, regardless of their party affiliations. “Washington is the first state in the country to establish a Top 2 Primary election system, rather than a party nominating system,” reads a note on the Secretary of State’s website. “A Top 2 Primary narrows the number of candidates to two. The two candidates who receive the most votes in the Primary advance to the General Election, regardless of their party preference.” Here are the first round of returns (the next round of ret ...

Music Midtown is officially back, but come late September when the expanded two-day festival returns to Piedmont Park, will neighborhoods surrounding the park be singing a happy tune? In recent months, the grumblings from Midtown residents have grown concerning the burden the neighborhood must bear in order for the rest of the city to party during a string of spring, summer and fall festivals and events staged in and near the park.

Signs of Life for Anti-Bullying Initiatives in D.C.: City Council prepares to pass long-stalled legislation as Gray proposes action plan to prevent bullying
Metro Weekly - almost 5 years
News: A City Council bill aimed at preventing physical and electronic forms of harassment, intimidation and bullying in District schools, libraries, parks and recreation centers – introduced more than a year ago ­– is finally seeing some movement. The bill, the ''Bullying and Intimidation Prevention Act of 2011,'' would require D.C. Public Schools (DCPS), D.C. Public Charter Schools (DCPCS), the Department of Parks and Recreation, the D.C. Public Library (DCPL) and the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) to adopt policies prohibiting harassment, intimidation or bullying on those agencies' property, at agency-sponsored functions and on school buses. Under the bill, those agencies are allowed to design and exercise local control over the specifics of their individual policies, but each policy must have a minimum requirement of 10 elements that the District deems essential to anti-bullying efforts. The bill also requires the agencies to adopt bullying prevention program ...

Proposal extending 'No-Cruising' hours expected Monday
Midtown Patch - almost 5 years
The Atlanta City Council returns from recess Monday afternoon with District 2 Councilman Kwanza Hall set to propose extending the conclusion of Midtown's no-cruising zone ordinance an additional three hours from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Hall said he is doing so to extend the reach local law enforcement officials have in their efforts to combat the persistent prostitution issue around residences and businesses in Midtown. Midtown has been plagued with pockets of prostitution for decades. There are times when the Atlanta Police Vice Unit teams with APD Zone 5 officers to produce successful undercover prostitution stings, such as the one late last month that resulted in 35 arrests. But the lack of resources makes such stings too infrequent, and an extended struggling economy has led to an “increase in activity” for Midtown prostitution according to Hall. “We are trying to figure out a strategy to address the concerns that the citizens have had for quite a long time in Midtown,” Hall t ...

Have you hit this road hazard on Ponce?
Midtown Patch - almost 5 years
There is an ill-fitted top to a water pipe on Ponce de Leon Avenue that maybe you’ve seen. It extends upward from the road almost two inches causing motorists to swerve dangerously in order to miss it. Those that would make contact would definitely be in risk of a blown tire. The safety hazard is in the far right lane of the three westbound lanes on Ponce between the Yaarab Shrine Temple and the Goodyear Midtown Tire business located at 411 Ponce de Leon Ave. When traffic is light, motorists maneuver out of the lane to avoid it. However when traffic is heavy in all three lanes, as it gets when cars are stopped at the light at Ponce and Charles Allen Drive just before the hazard, motorists in the far right lane often swerve to avoid the pipe top, coming dangerously close to making contact with vehicles in the middle lane. Have you seen this hazard? Have you hit it? Midtown Patch will be sending the pictures accompanying this article to the City of Atlanta Department of Publi ...

    Quoting Allen, Al-Awlaki responded in December 2008: "I would challenge him to come up with just one such lecture where I encourage 'terrorist attacks'".
    More Details Hide Details The FBI later investigated (but dismissed) al-Awlaki's connections to both the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting sole suspect, Nidal Malik Hasan, as well as to the Northwest Flight 253 bombing attempt in which he is believed to have played a part in the al-Qaeda operation, and trained and blessed the suspect. In August 2005 the New York Times reported that supporters of former C.I.A. Director George Tenet were critical of the CIA Inspector General's report on the intelligences failures ahead of the September 11 terrorist attacks for having failed to interview Allen, who was assistant director of central intelligence for collection.

    In 1998, after the bombing of two American embassies in East Africa, Mr. Allen was assigned by George Tenet to organize the agency's efforts against the terrorist network, according to testimony Mr. Tenet gave last year.
    More Details Hide Details He said that at the advice of Mr. Allen, he created a special unit with officers from the C.I.A., the National Security Agency and the NGA to meet daily and focus on Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Mark Perry offers this commentary about Allen based on information from colleagues: From an August 2004 U.S. News & World Report article: "…more of a legend than a man around the CIA. 'If you don't think you're getting your money's worth out of the federal government,' says an admirer, 'you should meet Charlie Allen.' A workaholic, Allen had served as an intelligence officer for 40 years and earned a reputation as a plain-spoken professional who regularly bucked the bureaucracy…" Duane Clarridge remarked in his memoir: "He (Allen) was a bit of a maverick; bright absolutely dedicated, on occasion short on diplomacy, and a workaholic."
  • FORTIES
  • 1980
    Age 44
    From 1980 to November 1982, Allen was detailed to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, where he was deputy director of a continuity of government planning project.
    More Details Hide Details A colleague quoted Allen as saying during a COG meeting, "our job is to throw the Constitution out the window." His assignment to the COG project brought him into contact with Oliver North, who was delegated to monitor COG's findings by National Security Adviser Robert McFarlane. Director of Central Intelligence William Webster formally reprimanded Allen for failing to fully comply with the DCI's request for full cooperation in the agency's internal Iran-Contra scandal investigation. After failing to have the reprimand lifted through the regular appeal process, Allen retained future DCI James Woolsey as an attorney and was successful in applying pressure to have the reprimand lifted. Mark Perry observes "Ironically, Allen's attack on Webster was as unjustified as Webster's reprimand." The reprimand stemmed from a set of missing papers found in Allen's office containing information on the arms-for-hostages deal. Allen claimed they had been inadvertently overlooked in a messy office. Supporters of Allen pointed out that Webster reprimanded the one person in the CIA who had brought his suspicions of a funds diversion to Robert Gates. Others asserted that Allen simply did not respect Webster.
